Einstein's Theory of Relativity Explained in Monosyllables

Have you ever wondered what Einstein's Theory of Relativity is all about? Do you tend to think in monosyllables? (If so, "monosyllables" is four syllables too many.)

Check out Dr. Edwin E. Slosson's description of Einstein's Theory of Relativity. It's explained using only words with one syllable.

I plan on showing this to my composition class and discussing issues of audience, context, and how to effectively communicate complex ideas. Slosson's monosyllabic explanation might be useful for science classes as well.
